Maths made easy with Maths Online

Georgina aged 11 is watching a Math tutorial

Hey everyone,

As most of you know by now we are large homeschooling family living in regional  New South Wales and we have been schooling now at home for almost 5 years and it’s been wonderful.  Although homeschooling has mostly been a breeze for my children and I,  there, of course have been some struggles along the way especially when it comes to maths. Maths is not their favourite subject and if i’m honest it’s not mine either, however,  it’s important that we work hard at mathematics because we will be using  these skills for the rest of our lives! The children often find their workbooks boring and lose interest very quickly! I decided it was time to try a different method of learning.

Maths onlineIn collaboration with Maths Online

In the last few days we have starting using a 12 month family membership with maths online and although it’s only early days my children are really excited to use it! I have never seen them so excited about maths before so I’m definitely a very happy mum right now! Over the next 12 months I will be updating you on their ongoing progress with the program We are so excited! Maths has just been become a fun subject in our household thanks to maths online!

How it works

Each of the 1,400+ Maths Online tutorials last around 4-9 minutes and present the concepts of the maths lesson step-by-step. Using synchronised audio and animation which harnesses both audio and visual learning styles simultaneously. Maths Online lessons can be studied at home or at school and all devices. Obviously no one can force a young person to study maths, but what we have done here is to provide materials that are interesting and stimulating in themselves, and which will encourage the student, once started, to continue studying.

What we love about it

What I love about the programs far is the video tutorials that you can listen to  before each lesson. the tutorial explains the lesson very well and even shows you few examples to help you. I also love that I am able to set tasks and keep a track of my children’s progress.

Recently I connected with an awesome company called Photobookshop.com.au and they asked me if I would like to work with them and review their amazing products! I take pictures like crazy.. so I was not going to say; “No” to this amazing offer! I was super excited!

Milton products review

Milton products review

Hey everyome

Recently I have been trialing the Milton baby products and I must say that I absolutely love everything that I have tried so far!

I am a mum of 9 and I confess, I hate germs! I like to keep things clean and sterilized especially things like high chairs, walkers, bottles, teats & dummies. If our family gets sicks then it can be quite chaotic for us! I always do everything I can to keep a clean house! A busy house with lots of children sure does keep you on your toes!

over the last couple of months I have been using three products from the Milton range which were;

  1. Milton antibacterial washing up liquid
  2. Milton antibacterial surface wipes
  3. Milton antibacterial tablets

My most favorite product out of the whole Milton range was the antibacterial surface wipes. The are quite a small pack which means you can easily put them in your handbag or nappy bag and use them on the go! They are also now safe to use for cleaning dummies and teats! Its so handy for busy families on the go!

I am that kind of mum that does not like germs and wipes everything and everyone down! We try our absolute hardest to not get sick, but as we all know we can’t always avoid it! I love how quick and easy Milton products are to use. I am always using the surface wipes on the highchairs after meal times. I think they are awesome!

I loved using the Milton antibacterial washing up liquid. I mostly used it on the the sippy cups and the baby bottles and even the baby feeding bowls. When I ran out of my normal washing liquid I was using the Milton one! Everything came up so clean and shiny! it’s brilliant and I would highly recommend it if you like to get things clean quickly.

I also have been using the Milton antibacterial tablets, I, however, do not have a Milton sterilizer and instead used a heatproof bowl with boiling water and then put a tablet in and waited for it to dissolve. I popped the bottles, teats, dummies in there for 15 minutes and they sterilized nicely! I think they are great and still have plenty left to use.

I think the whole Milton range is fantastic and we will definitely continue Milton products in our busy house!

Thank you, Milton

Sudocrem – reveiw

Sudocrem – reveiw

Hey everyone,

Today I want to talk to you about the best nappy cream ever called Sudocrem! I am sure most of you have heard of it!

I am a mum of Nine children under eleven, and for years I have used Sudocrem for the whole family. Not only is it good for the kids skin, it is also good for my husband and I’s skin! it’s really suitable for all

Sudocrem provides gentle yet effective relief from cuts, grazes and minor burns. It helps to heal wounds by forming a protective layer over the vulnerable area, reducing the risk of infection, and also contains a mild local anesthetic to soothe discomfort.

I love thick thickness of the cream and how it acts as a barrier on the affected area! When my children have been teething in the past, they usually would get a bad nappy rash around the same time! I apply sudocream during these tough teething times times and within 2 -3 days the rash would be clear! It’s my go to cream for cuts, rashes,dry skin, grazes and minor burns! No other cream has worked for this! It even works on my hands when my dermatitis is bad in the winter season. I carry a tub of the cream everywhere I go! I absolutely love it!

“Sudocrem is always there to help solve life’s little problems”

Thanks sudocream for being so awesome!

BabyU baby wipes review

BabyU baby wipes review

Hey everyone!

Today I want to talk to you about Baby Wipes. There are so many different brands out there to chose from that it can end up being overwhelming for us parents. I recently have been trialling the Baby U products range, I was lucky enough to meet this brand recently at a kids business blogger event in Sydney. I have been trailing 3 different types of wipes from their product range and I absolutely loved them all!

Here are 3 different types that I have tested;

1.BabyU Bamboo baby wipes

BabyU Bamboo baby wipes
They have all natural ingredients, they smell great and they glide on the skin and were not harsh in any way. Leaving the children’s skin super soft! They were really great and I would definitely get them again! I honestly love the idea of bamboo baby wipes

2.BabyU Goat milk wipes

These wipes were actually amazing especially if my baby had a sore bottom which he does a lot of the moment due to teething! I have always been a fan of goats milk because it is very good for dry skin conditions. These wipes were very soothing and left the kids skin feeling super soft. Loved them!

3. BabyU soft and thick wipes

These wipes were extra thick and super moist, and I love that about them. You really do need those extra thick wipes for extra dirty bottoms from time to time! Because of the extra thickness you only need to use 1 -2 wipes per nappy change.  I also loved the texture of these wipes. and the fact that they were fragrance-free. I  also loved how soft the children’s skin felt after using these wipes.

I enjoyed testing all of these wipes out and I honestly I could not pick a favourite! I like how well packaged the wipes are and how easy the lid closes on the packet of wipes. My biggest pet peeve with wipes is when the lid doesn’t shut properly and all your wipes end up drying out! I would highly recommend them all to you. See which ones work best for you and your family. You can purchase these wipes from places such as; Chemist warehouse, baby direct AU, Coles, BigW and many more…

Thanks, BabyU

Eonian Care bottle warmer & sterilizer review

Eonian Care bottle warmer & sterilizer review

Hey everyone,

Last month I was invited to a wonderful mummy blogger event called kid’s business, whilst I was at the event, I met an amazing brand called Eonian Care. Eonion makes a wide range of breastfeeding and sterilazation baby products. They are Australian owned and operated baby care company. The products are very affordable and they even have afterpay as a payment option.

All Eonian Care products are inspired by nature and tested to meet or even exceed the Australian Standards. As a mum of nine children under eleven years of age, sterilization of baby bottles and dummies is a must in my house! I was lucky enough to be gifted this amazing bottle warmer and sterilizer machine. I have been trialling this machine for a few weeks now and I am absolutely loving it! The colours of this machine are beautiful as well! It definitely has added a pop of colour to my old country house. It has also simplified my life so much!

Michael has just turned one and it’s my personal choice is to still sterilize all his bottles and dummies. I prepare all his bottles the night before and then heat them throughout the day in the bottle warmer. It is so simple to use and only takes a few minutes to heat the bottles! I also love the sterilization part of the machine. The rack has enough space for at least 4 bottles, teats and a couple of dummies and it only takes 10 minutes to sterilize! That means I have got time for a quick coffee! When you first use this machine it is important to thoroughly read through the instructions which are provided, as the machine does require a certain amount of water to be added when using both elements of the machine. It is important to pour in the right amount of water, this is made super simple as a measuring cup is provided!

Thankyou Eonion for the bottle warmer/ sterilizer. I absolutely love it! It is so easy to use and is completely Stress-free! I am a very happy mum of Nine!
